The IRONMAN® UK bike course starts with a 14 mile point to point cycle from Pennington Flash in Leigh. The course travels via Westhoughton and Horwich before doing one of the new two lap circuit which starts from Adlington in Lancashire. Travelling counter-clockwise on the loop and taking in over 300m of climbing the course visits Rivington, Belmont, Abbey Village, Wheelton, then heads north to Brindle and down through Whittle-le-Woods to the north side of Buckshaw Village. It continues west to Croston and skirts Mawdesley and Hilldale. The course then turns south from Wrightington, left onto Pepper Lane and then north on the A49 to join the old course at Coppul Moor Lane. Adlington marks the start of the second lap where this ride finishes just south in the village of Horwich.
In 2016 the race was won by Kirill Kotsegarov in a time of 08:41:13 and Lucy Gossage in a time of 09:26:05.
